Since Michael Lopez was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) in 2014, the social media star's inspired thousands around the globe with his infectious positivity and rad dance moves. Along the way, Michael made a special friend who cheered on his viral dance projects through all the ups and downs of cancer. Tragically, "Mr. Payne" recently lost his battle with AML, but Michael's using this heartbreaking loss as motivation to keep spreading joy.

Michael just got the happy news that he can go home soon, but he's already making ambitious plans for the future. Next up, he's recreating Michael Jackson's "Bad" music video with fellow cancer patients! Because his AML battle isn't over yet, pitch in on Michael's GoFundMe campaign.

Hear it from the hospital dance legend himself, because RightThisMinute hosts scored the exclusive interview.
